I’m the only girl
when you fall down
from my knees
Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, by Peter Zumthor, 2011 - in London, UK
The concept for 2011 Pavilion is the hortus conclusus, a contemplative room, a garden within a garden. One enters the building from the lawn and begins the transition into the central garden, a place abstracted from the world of noise and traffic and the smells of London - an interior space within which to sit, to walk, to observe the flowers.
—Alan Feldman, Poetry, November 2001
On August 9, 1945, U.S. forces dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Hiroshima was hit three days earlier. Pulitzer prize-winning author Richard Rhodes discusses his book, The Making of the Atomic Bomb.
